People say I post too much

Well, It wouldn't make much difference to the actual game, but adds a helluva lotta variety when you kill people... I notice it gets REALLY boring when every person you shoot dies the same way. I've had some weird ideas for how ragdolls can be made heaps better, but not sure how it could be done. Plus with ragdolls you can usually do really weird stuff.
SeinfeldRulesWhy is it so important to have ragdoll ? I know it looks nice and makes it feel more realistic, but it doesn't effect the way the game is played, does it? It's just eye candy. If Half-Life 2 didn't have ragdolls, would that make it any lesser of a game? I just don't see why ragdolls are so important to have in a game.
I would like the see them spend time on better graphics and gameplay instead of things like ragdoll.
ragdoll are great, if the graphics where farcry like, the realism of brothers in arms and the physics of half life 2 it would be great, and with farcry around its 1st birthday, a lot of systems (now) can handle it so it wouldnt lag badly
half life 2 without ragdoll would be VERY fucked up. a lot of the game is centered around physics, it has some physics puzzles and crap. ragdolls are VERY important and they are EXTREMELY needed. without em staring at peoples dead corpses is damn boring. cant wait to get brothers in arms. i wish cod 2 would have gore like brothers in arms :)
I wouldn't really call it gore...

I would rather have the developers spend time making the gameplay engaging and fun then spend time adding something that has no real consequence on the way the game is played. Even if a game has ragdolls, it still can be boring. Having ragdolls doesn't automatically make it a great game. Yeah, it would make the game look better, but in the end, will it make the game more fun to play? Would you not buy BiA if it didn't have ragdolls? Of course not. BiA will be a great game, but that's because the gameplay will be unique and inovative. Yeah, seeing the same corpse over and over again may get boring, but a truly good game will have you so engaged, that you won't even notice. :)
they still could be adding ragdoll physics, its still in the alpha stages of development
they could spend their time on fun elements AND ragdolls. and ragdolls DO make a game fun, without its ragdoll half life 2 and painkiller wwud be totally different games.. cant wait to see some gore in BiA
manslauter ( promised a d-day level)
Btw, there already are several d-day levels in the original cod
sry to go off topic but brothers in arms is due out the 18th not 15th and man i cant wait
